KINESIOTAPING

The kinesiotape term comes from two words: "kinesis" (movement) and tape (bandage).

Also called neuromuscular bandage , it is an elastic type bandage technique. that, unlike the functional rigid bandage, does not limit the mobility of the area in which it is applied. This elastic capacity is what gives different tissues the freedom of movement they need for recovery.

These neuromuscular tapes will have an effect on the nervous system, the circulatory system and the musculoskeletal system.

Despite its ease of application, it is important to note that the figure of the physiotherapist is important when it comes to placing them, since it is essential to know the direction, direction and tension of the bands themselves.

Effects or actions it has on the body:

  • Analgesia by   decreased pressure on the afferent and efferent receptors found in the subcutaneous space.

  • Activation of the blood and lymphatic circulation (decrease in inflammation, decrease in bruising ...) increasing the subcutaneous space where the capillaries are located, thus improving their function.

  • Improves muscle function : reduces muscle fatigue, modulates muscle tone (increases or decreases muscle tone), improves flexibility ...

  • Improves joint function : acts on proprioception and corrects joint position, corrects direction of movement, increases joint stability ...

  • Improves fascial function : improves the interrelation between the fascia and prevents adhesions between them, favoring normal movement.

  • Improves posture : thanks to the sensorimotor and proprioceptive information it provides.

  • Accelerates the tissue repair process: increases local blood circulation and favors the drainage of waste substances.

  • Neuroreflex action : by acting on the dermatome, we can influence the rest of the elements of the metamera.
